Need some level pictures
« on: March 10, 2012, 09:10:17 am »
Hi,
I need some levels for my game. To make one all you have to do is post a picture of a level (Max size is around 500x200, minimum size is 100x64). Remember this is for a game with movement and stuff like chattahippie's The Slime. Also this game is pixel-perfect and the character is a 3x3 square. So here are the requirements:

-All monochrome except last picture is 4-lvl grayscale
-3 pictures: 1st showing only black where there will be solid in the game, 2nd picture showing black only where death pixels* are, and 3rd picture (This one is 4-lvl grayscale) shows what you will actually see in the game. The first 2 are not visible but are needed for game pixel-testing purposes
-In the post tell me what the coordinates are where the player will be spawned at, like (5,10) or something (Point (0,0) is at the very bottom left corner)


*Death pixels make you die when touched

I also posted an example.
EXAMPLE: Player coordinates: (32, 61)
**NOTE: The example doesn't have any death pixels*, so I skipped the 2nd picture. Just add it in to yours.

Also the bottom 3 pictures is a level turiqwalrus made.

EDIT: The character can jump around 12-14 pixels high.
Thanks, and have a nice day,
nxtboy III

I'll help if you give a bit of info:
-How high can the character jump(in pixels)? I'd hate to make a level, but see it not work because the character can't jump high enough :P
-so the character can fit in a 3-high tunnel, right?
-anything else that might pertain to level design...

Yes, the character can jump around 17-20 pixels. Yeah, he can fit in a 3-high tunnel.
Thanks for helping! :)

Yup. :)

EDIT: Actually the size of the level can be larger than 100x64.

EDIT2: Yeah, so the size could even be 500x200 because of scrolling! :D

Yeah, well, it is pixel perfect, not tiled, so...... yeah, that's why. :P lol
Could you help, maybe?

EDIT: Actually the max size should probably be around 500x200... It takes up so much space. :P

Hmm, interesting. Question: Is this method the best way of storing the level(size wise)? If so, I'll use it in the future. :)(to program in AXE hehe)

Ummm....
Well, size-wise, it takes up around 9.7 kilobytes for the big level, since it has to have 3 pictures for 4-lvl grayscale. The other two solid and kill pictures take up around 3.2 kilobytes (I'm talking about a 200x128 pixel level).

He's using this for detail. Also, how much space does the nxt have?

Thanks Stefan! :)
Yeah, this way is easier to make levels, though it takes up a lot of space.
Sadly, my NXT only has around 105-ish kilobytes of storage, with everything deleted, except the firmware.

turiq- You should maybe make me more levels..... ;)
And could other's make some levels for me? please?   :angel:
